Bartley Funeral Home - Minerva Obituary

Nathaniel “Glenn” Marshall, 92, of Minerva, Ohio, formerly of Carrollton, passed away peacefully on June 9, 2019 surrounded by family. He had been an active resident of Canton Christian Home for the last 3½ years. Glenn was born November 28, 1926 in Carrollton, Ohio, a son of George and Edith (Swan) Marshall.

He was a proud Army veteran who served as a surgical technician during World War II. Following the service, he enjoyed a 30-year career with Eljer Plumbing in Salem, while also working part time as a professional photographer. Glenn was a kind and patient man who loved his family dearly. He would never miss a dinner outing, particularly if it included a good filet mignon. An avid card player, he was always eager to join or start a game of bridge, rummy 500 or euchre. He was a member of the Odd Fellows. Glenn also enjoyed golfing, bowling, and watching his Ohio sports teams, especially OSU football. His favorite sporting event, though, was his annual deer hunting trip with the “Mandley Boys”.

Glenn was preceded in death by his wife Lois Marshall and first wife Phyllis Marshall, brother, John; sister Carol Ann Avery; son-in-law Robert Moody; stepson Bill Dillon; and a great granddaughter.

He is survived by daughter Mary Jane Moody of North Canton; grandson Kevin (Holly) Moody of Dalton; and great-granddaughters Story and Merida Moody. He also leaves behind step-daughters Cynthia (Jon) Erwin of Tucson, AZ, Nancy Dillon of Tucson, AZ, and Sally (Cliff) Williams of Massillon, OH, along with 5 step grandchildren (Eric, Kristofer, Amanda, Bailey and Patrick), 13 step great-grandchildren, and 2 step great-great grandchildren.

Glenn will be sorely missed.

Not sure what to say?

Dear Mary Jane,

I was sorry to see that your father had died. I remember him as being such a nice man and a wonderful , fun neighbor. I have many fond memories of those years in Carrollton and living next door to your family.
I no longer subscribe to the Standard but happened to be in Carrollton Saturday to play golf with David and some of his high school friends. While I was there I visited the cemetery and happened to see his grave which is near my parents' graves.

Dear Mary Jane,
What a good man was your dad. I am sorry to read of your loss. I remember helping my Dad build that sandstone wall in the front of your house on Lisbon. Our fathers talked the whole time Dad was working.

My sympathy to you and all who loved your Dad
